Administrative Responsibilities

During the 2016-2017 academic year, I will be on a 12-month administrative leave, following my term as Head. During this time, I have no assigned administrative duties, though I am still active on many graduate student supervisory committees, including those of my own students. I will be a bit hard to find during my planned travels in Fall 2016, but will be in or near Calgary for most of Winter 2017. I am usually on campus one day per week (Mondays), to meet with my graduate students.

I served as Head for the Department of Computer Science from July 2011 to June 2016. During that time, I got to go to lots of exciting committee meetings, including:

  • Department of Computer Science Executive Committee
  • Academic Selection (Hiring) Committee
  • Dean's Advisory Committee (DAC)
  • Faculty Promotions Committee (FPC)
  • Faculty of Science Executive Committee
  • Faculty of Science Council
  • Provost's Heads Advisory Committee
  • Heads Forum

For the 2010-2011 academic year, I was Acting Head for the Department of Computer Science, and got to serve on many of the committees listed above, as well as the PAR (Post-Award Research) advisory group.

In the 2009-2010 academic year, I served on the following committees at the University of Calgary:

  • Research and Planning Committee
  • Graduate Scholarships Committee (Chair)
  • Faculty of Graduate Studies Scholarships Committee
  • Post-Award Research (PAR) Advisory Group

In prior years, I have served on the following committees at different times:

  • Research and Planning Committee
  • Graduate Affairs Committee
  • Academic Selection (Hiring) Committee
  • Faculty of Graduate Studies Scholarships Committee
  • General Promotions Committee
  • University Systems Enabling Research (USER) Task Force

I am also involved with Cybera, ISPIA, and WestGrid at the U of C.
